Available now on digital through the San Francisco-based label Broken Clover Records, is the digital compilation “BCR Clippings #1” holding torpedo’s brand new single “Hope / Dream”. The track comes a couple of months after releasing their sophomore album “Orpheo_ Nebula”.

Founded in 2016 in the city of Lausanne, torpedo was then made up of Carole Obère, on vocals and guitar, Jérôme Diserens, on bass and keyboard, and machines as only companions. The group draws its energy from its beginnings in an industrial, post-apocalyptic and rough universe approaching no-wave and kraut with a touch of punk.

In 2018, when conceiving their first album in a remote collaboration with Antoine Pfammatter on drums, the duo hid in a small house on the Irish west coast. It was there that torpedo recorded their first album “Sphynx”. Self-produced, it was released in April 2019. Two months earlier, the duo met the Dutch drummer Andries Hannaart and became a trio.

Since you’re here …

… we have a small favour to ask. More people are reading Side-Line Magazine than ever but advertising revenues across the media are falling fast. Unlike many news organisations, we haven’t put up a paywall – we want to keep our journalism as open as we can - and we refuse to add annoying advertising. So you can see why we need to ask for your help.

Side-Line’s independent journalism takes a lot of time, money and hard work to produce. But we do it because we want to push the artists we like and who are equally fighting to survive.

If everyone who reads our reporting, who likes it, helps fund it, our future would be much more secure. For as little as 5 US$, you can support Side-Line Magazine – and it only takes a minute. Thank you.
